Arnaud Yvinec

Arnaud Yvinec works as CEO and fund manager at Laffitte Capital Management and has 27 years of experience in trading. He started his career as a Quant at SDBO (ex-Crédit Lyonnais) and traded options and convertibles bonds. Then he moved to CIC to set up a new subsidiary (CIC Equity Derivatives) and started their basket trading, merger arbitrage and equity finance activities with Eric Robbe. They were both pioneers in delta one arbitrage in France. Yvinec graduated with a masters in finance from Paris Sorbonne University.


With a global mandate, the fund aims at implementing complementary arbitrage strategies to deliver absolute performance.The sub-funds objective is to implement equity arbitrage strategies by using an approach based on three main principles: a fundamental analysis linked to a statistical-probabilistic analysis and an optimization of the portfolios allocation based on the risk/reward of each position.The strategies are mainly implemented in Europe and in North America. The portfolio can be invested in other geographic areas as well (notably in Japan or countries outside of Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development included emerging markets).
